Boot Yer Butt: The Doors Bootlegs

Classic Rock - - The Hard Stuff Buyer's Guide -

Robby Krieger went through the ar­chives to com­pile this four-disc collection of live rar­i­ties, which in­cludes four tracks from their penul­ti­mate show, at State Fair Mu­sic Hall, the lengthy at­tack on Love Her Madly be­ing the charm.

It’s hard to source in its orig­i­nal box now (it costs a for­tune), but it’s worth hear­ing to ex­pe­ri­ence The Doors mov­ing through the gears from club hope­fuls to hard­ened pro­fes­sion­als, and Mor­ri­son’s tran­si­tion from sex sym­bol to trou­bled soul pro­vides a com­pelling nar­ra­tive. The sound qual­ity doesn’t match the clar­ity of their stu­dio work, but there’s real menace within.
